Q*bert sound fix


Recommended Posts

Purple baddies (Ugg and Wrong Way) make a clicking noise on the 5200, but have full-fledged pokey sounds on the A8 cart.

The 5200's sound data was "FF FF FF'ed" out. The A8 sound data fit perfectly in this spot. The pointer to the sound location had also been altered so I'm thinking the coder may have planned on adding new sounds but forgot.


Nice review: http://cafeman.www9.50megs.com/atari/5200QBert.html


Imagine if a 32k rom were the norm. Q*bert's 8k code with 24k worth of samples. Maybe a future project for kenfused.
